Cricket: Khaled Mashud.

Former captain Khaled Mashud's maiden Test century helped Bangladesh secure a meritable draw against West Indies at Gros Islet in St Lucia.

Mashud's unbeaten 103 allowed Bangladesh skipper Habibul Bashar to declare for the first time in the Test side's short history and set Windies an improbable 336 to win from a maximum 29 overs. West Indies closed on 113 for no loss, Chris Gayle making 66 and Devon Smith 40.

It was only the Bangladeshis' third draw in 29 Tests and they still await a victory. The other two draws came against Zimbabwe.

Bangladesh, with a lead of 158 but in trouble at 94 for six in their second innings at the end of the fourth day, batted determinedly to frustrate the home attack.
